Linux Foundation online course
« on: November 18, 2021, 04:28:29 pm »
I am a new Linux user. I have received on this forum nice help from other members regarding few issues I encountered.

About 10 days ago I started an online beginners course offered by the Linux Foundation. I am finding it fascinating. Of course "beginner" means many things, so I found few chapters too easy (pretty basic stuff on the GUI and software repository); and then some of them well over my head. They do require study.

The course teaches the main distributions, it's not possible of course talking about all of them. Definitely doing the job for my Linux Mint; and quite interesting finding out more about CentOS and Red Hat.

I have by now gone through 35% of the course, and am definitely very excited by the learning curve. It is a useful course, but you really have to concentrate if you are an average user. The synapsis says you just need to be a standard computer user, but in truth they do expect you to know quite more than the basics.

Good challenge though, I feel I'll be much less average at the end of it!
I thought of sharing this experience.

Many thanks for reporting on this course, WT. 

The Linux Foundation provides many Linux courses, and this one looks like the one you are using: https://training.linuxfoundation.org/training/introduction-to-linux/
My own learning has been from this forum and other websites, and from a book: "The Linux command Line" by Shotts which is very good, moving from the simplest examples to advanced functions.  It is available as a free PDF download here:
https://www.alloteacher.com/2021/08/the-linux-command-line-complete.html
or as hard copy:
https://www.abebooks.co.uk/servlet/SearchResults?sts=t&cm_sp=SearchF-_-home-_-Results&tn=The%20Linux%20Command%20Line%3A%20A%20Complete%20Introduction

Perhaps other Members will tell us their prime source of Linux learning.....
